Q: Why Plant a Tree?
Posted on 04. Jul, 2016 by admin

Planting trees is a natural way to add value to your property, reduce energy costs, spruce up your landscape, and nurture the surrounding wildlife. Not only do trees help you earn money, they can help you save a tidy bit of cash! Trees provide year-round protection against the elements. They can protect your house from strong winds, heavy snow, summer heat, and raging storms - all while drastically reducing your energy bills.

The trees you plant now provide more than just personal financial and aesthetic benefits for you; they will linger long after you are gone, and the environment will benefit from your efforts.

Q: How can I avoid an outbreak of pests?
Posted on 04. Dec, 2015 by admin

It's impossible to guarantee that pests won't become a problem on your property. But there are some proactive measures to keep in mind:

A healthy landscape is less susceptible to pest outbreaks and is more resilient if an outbreak does occur. When trees are overcrowded in your landscape, competition for light, water, and nutrients results in increased stress. Trees under stress are more likely to be attacked by pests.

Q: What's Wrong with My Soil?
Posted on 04. Dec, 2015 by admin

Soil quality, or lack thereof, can drastically impact the health of your landscape. Healthy soil efficiently regulates water, filters pollutions, and produces vital nutrients for your trees. But how can you tell if there's something wrong with your soil? Unhealthy plants are the most obvious indicator; however, it is best to correct soil problems before this happens.

Check your soil's health by digging up a sample and examining it. Does your sample match the guidelines above? If so, great! But remember, an untrained eye may not catch all soil defects. Fortunately, there are several fool-proof ways to evaluate the quality of your soil at home.
